Over the last few months, our Founder and CEO, Heather Holmes, has been broadening her knowledge of the financial tech industry at the prestigious FIS Fintech Accelerator in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Who is FIS?
FIS serves the largest players in the financial world, processing 27 billion transactions and $9 trillion annually. Out of 30 fintech startups, only 10 leaders are asked to participate in this exclusive accelerator. During their 12 week stay, they learn from the best, brightest and most influential people in the fintech sector. Corporate partners such as Google, AWS and Hubspot are investing in the next generation of financial technology. We’re proud to be among them.
How Genivity is excelling at the accelerator
Genivity started as a platform to use family health history, environmental factors, and behavioral information to project future medical expenses of any given individual. Today, after attending the FIS Accelerator, Heather is convinced we can do that and so much more. The price of medical care shows no signs of decreasing. Giving people solutions to help them plan how much they will need and when has the potential to open up billions of dollars in savings and push the envelope on future financial planning.
Heather and the entire Genivity team were honored that she was invited to this accelerator. It not only validates that Genivity is on to something groundbreaking, but that our technology and vision have the potential to disrupt the financial industry globally. More importantly, however, help people live healthy, happy lives in retirement.
